CVAD Promotions and Tenure 2020


From Dean Watts

June 6, 2020 — I recently received final notification of approval from our Board of Regents for tenure and promotion decisions, the last step in a rigorous process. Tenure is earned by performance exceptional enough to receive the approval of senior colleagues, external reviewers, and university administrators; promotion acknowledges the ongoing and sustained accomplishments of faculty in their career.

Positive decisions like these reflect the outstanding achievements of faculty in their research, teaching, and service to their department, college and university. Please join me in congratulating our colleagues on their success.

Alicia Eggert, associate professor with tenure, Studio Art

Nadine Kalin, professor, Art Education

Keith Owens, professor, Design
